David Schwartz, Director of the Center for Gaming Research, has been selected as one of "2013 40 Under 40 Leaders in Waiting" by Global Gaming Business magazine. At this year’s G2E conference, Global Gaming Business and the Innovation Group joined with G2E and American Gaming Association leaders to kick off what will become an annual program, 'Emerging Leaders." The program identifies young workers and executives in the gaming industry who have made a mark during their early careers and rewards them with scholarships and recognition for their accomplishments. The goal of this program is to get the industry to begin considering in earnest who might succeed the established leaders. "Emerging Leaders" will be both an ongoing program at G2E every year and will have presence in the pages of Global Gaming Business each month.
